Wipro Infotech announced that the Employees’ State
Insurance Corporation’s (ESIC) insurance portal is up and running in full swing
and available for use to all stakeholders.
ESIC is a statutory corporation under the Ministry of
Labour and Employment, Government of India (GoI), and is the implementing
agency of a pioneering, Social Security Scheme in India.
The IT enablement project named Project Panchdeep was
awarded to Wipro in 2009. This announcement is in the wake of a technical issue
which had affected the functioning of the portal for the last couple of weeks.
The technical problem is completely resolved now,
and the system is back to normal performance. The problem occurred due to a
unique technical issue with the application software. We leveraged our global
technical resources to identify and resolve the issue in the shortest possible
time,” said Anand Sankaran, senior vice president and Business Head, India, Middle
East and Africa, Wipro.
I believe, we have traversed a long and exciting journey
since our association began with ESIC in early 2009. We are extremely proud to
be a part of such a program which touches the lives of a big section of our
society, and are absolutely committed to ensuring the success of this
implementation,” Anand added.
The portal was experiencing some technical problem
because of which employers were having trouble accessing the application to
generate their monthly contribution and register their employees. Wipro
identified the problem and put in place a solution to resolve the issue.
The application performance has since improved and the portal is up and running
once again,” said C S Kedar, DG, ESIC.
The Project Panchdeep comprises five important
components namely Pehchan, Milap, Pashan, Dhanwantri
and Pragati. Project Pehchan includes all services related to
identification, authentication and verification of Insured Persons (IPs)
through the use of biometric cards.
The other four components include Milap for all services
related to provisioning network and bandwidth; Pashan for all services related
to hardware for Data Centre, Disaster Recovery, desktops/PCs/Laptops and

Project Panchdeep provides online facilities to employers

anywhere healthcare services from across 2000+ ESIC locations spread across the
